Yep guess Austria lent them a ton of money and still?

Going down hard!!!

Austria's finance minister Josef Pröll made frantic efforts last week to put together a €150bn rescue for the ex-Soviet bloc. Well he might. His banks have lent €230bn to the region, equal to 70pc of Austria's GDP.

"A failure rate of 10pc would lead to the collapse of the Austrian financial sector," reported Der Standard in Vienna. Unfortunately, that is about to happen.

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) says bad debts will top 10pc and may reach 20pc. The Vienna press said Bank Austria and its Italian owner Unicredit face a "monetary Stalingrad" in the East.

This is the Trigger...really bad outlook...

Steinbrueck Says Euro States May Bail Out Members (Update1)

Is this their plan over there?

Very informative article.

...Michels said the EU can help governments that are finding it hard to sell their bonds without violating the bloc’s “no bail-out” clause. Any insolvency of a euro region country would be “fraught with significant costs” for the EU as a whole.

Quite an understatement, don't you think?

[edit to add:]

Must go now. I'd appreciate if someone else could take the reigns.

Not least after Wall Street opens...

Japan plunges into depression

AUSTRALIA'S biggest and most reliable customer, Japan, has plunged into depression, with federal Treasurer Wayne Swan now warning of the worst global downturn "in our lifetimes".

- Japan among worst hit
- Businesses forecast losses
- Australian export fears

Japan's economy shrank an annualised 12.7 per cent over the December quarter, its worst result since the 1974 oil shock.

Japan is by far Australia's biggest export customer, accounting for one in every five container ships that leave Australia's shores.

The new figures put it among the worst-hit casualties of the global crisis.

The annualised contraction of 12.7 per cent, or 3.3 per cent in quarterly terms, dwarfs those of the United States and Europe and is much worse than anything that happened to Japan during its so-called "lost decade" of recession in the 1990s.

The collapse in growth fits the profile of a depression — a deep recession in which annual GDP falls by 10 per cent or more.

I'm gonna go ahead and say that we won't see 8,000 for a long time.... a very long time.

We are now stuck in 7,000 range and lets hope that we don't see 6,999 anytime soon.

put the mini-crash in perspective....

that perspective is that this very day, President Obama
signed the Stimulus Package into law....

hmmm... Pelosi stimulus pkg + market sinks 297 DOW points

just wait for the actual bank bailout of $1.3 trillion
we'll probably see the market retreat another 500 DOW points,
if that has any meaningful, long term consequences

All I care about at the moment is the AUD-USD exchange rate. I'm flying to Hawaii from Australia for my wedding in three weeks.

Someone give me some good news. Please tell me the Aussie dollar won't tank by then. Just as long as it stays above .60 I'll be happy.

Gold shot up to 970 an ounce up from 940. JUST LAST NIGHT. That is a HUGE increase. This means someone moved a hell of alot of money. And the dow being down 300 points...This is scary stuff.
